Jeff Russell Boise Idaho Out Front Racing
March 5, 2015
I wanted to update everyone on Jeff's progress. He is doing very well in his Speech Therapy, a few more clear words and a few sentences. We are very proud of him as he is working very hard to get well. His knee is doing so much better since his surgery. He still tires very easily which is normal for a Traumatic Brain Injury. We are working with his right hand trying to get those 3 fingers to work. Found out that his insurance will cover some occupational therapy at St. Luke's ( The old Elk's Rehab Center). We are already working on his 5th Annual Jeff Russell Benefit being held at Meridian Speedway on July 25th. We are in the process of making new shirts this year and selling advertising on the back. It will be a very cool shirt with Jeff's Rotax Motorcycle and Race Car and picture of Jeff. On the back will be advertising for whoever buys in this year. Very good way to advertise and also help Jeff. Thank you everyone for all your support and it warms our hearts to think of such loving, giving people. Jeff would do the very same for all of you!
We love you and we are all looking forward to spring!
Marilyn (Jeff's Mom)
Dear Friends and Fans,
We want to wish everyone a wonderful Holiday Season.
Jeff is progressing well. He's getting a few more words out every week but some things we still can't understand but our son never gives up.
The Speech Therapist is very pleased but it will all take time. Bryan, his Physical Therapist took Jeff on an outing last Sunday.
They went to a Sports Bar to have lunch and watch the Steeler's win. Jeff had so much fun and he just wants to be like everyone else. He's still one of the guys and Bryan does so much for Jeff and is so proud of the amazing things Jeff is doing and is so proud to be a part of his progress.
Thanks Bryan for being a great friend also. Thanks for everyone's help and the encouragement they have given Jeff.
Thanks Tom Joyce for your frequent visits, which Jeff really enjoys!
Jeff will be having knee surgery next month for several problems which need to be addressed, so keep him in your prayers!
We will let you know how he is doing and maybe some visits will help Jeff pass the time. Anyone, it's that time of year to show love,so stop in a wish him a Happy Holiday Season and the Best new Year ever!
We love you all! Cherish your wonderful families!
First of all, a big Thank You to Meridian Speedway and Rods and Rides Car and Bike show, for the Benefit's for Jeff this year.
Everyone involved did so much work for Jeff and everyone that attended. It really warms our hearts to think people still care so much for Jeff's recovery.
Jeff is going forward, yet slowly and thankful not backwards. He's getting a few more words out but this also will take time.
He loves working out with his physical trainer, Bryan. Of course he loves when Mari is coming for his Speech Therapy, although it is very intense for Jeff.
Jeff is working very hard and understands, but sometimes gets so frustrated.
He is having a visitor today, Beth Fullerton who is visiting from Calif., so Jeff will be so happy.
Thank you Beth for visiting. You are all welcome to visit Jeff.
We are so proud of Jeff and the determination and sometimes it hurts me as a Mom that I can't make this better, sooner!
Thankful he is here. Love him so much!
Prayers always for Jeff, please!
